Guitar Slim And Other "Guitar" Guys


Friday, December 10 and Sunday, December 12

Crossroads celebrates the December 10th birthday of blues great Guitar Slim. We’ll hear covers of his songs from Stevie Ray Vaughan, Candye Kane, Duke Robillard and Buddy Guy, along with other Guitar guys – another Guitar Slim (Alec Seward), Guitar Pete, and Guitar Shorty (who worked in Guitar Slim’s band) in hour one – and we’ve got a Guitar Slim Special in hour two of the show.

Chicago native Chris Heim produces and hosts Global Village, a nationally and internationally distributed world music show heard in more than 40 states and nearly 40 countries; the nightly jazz show Night Train, and Crossroads, KMUW’s twice-weekly blues and R&B show. In 2020, Chris received first place in Special Program from the Kansas Association of Broadcasters for Global Village at the Savannah Music Festival, as well as first place in DJ Personality Air Check for Night Train.
